But that will also disable any autpupdate feature they have too.

Make sure you check the hide all Microsoft services box when going into the services tab since you could accidently disable the wrong thing namely an eseential background service for Windows there. Fortunately however you can always go back in and re-enabled anything you disable even if you have to boot up in safe mode. A system restart is required to see any changes put into effect.
alright I completely forgot about the services tab and always look at the startup tab, I guess I should disable anything symantic since I dont want/need real time protection as well. When I run these programs to do a scan thought will their services start up automatically?

er now that I disabled many symantic services, it no longer runs that rtvscan.exe thing but I can't disable auto-protect ( it just renables itself back on when I do, before I could ). Although according to task manager my system is actually using less memory anyways...so...should I just leave it like it is?
